Smiley is the new internet serial killer movie. That alone has a nice spin on the regular serial killer plot. Smiley stars Caitlin Gerard, Melanie Papalia, Shane Dawson, Toby Turner, Roger Bart and Keith David. Here’s hoping that Smiley will deliver on the expectations.
The story of the film follows a mentally fragile college student named Ashley (Caitlin Gerard from "Magic Mike" and "The Social Network") who, after learning of an urban legend in which a mysterious serial killer named "Smiley" can be summoned through the Internet, must decide whether she is losing her mind or becoming Smiley’s next victim.
Directed by Michael J. Gallagher
Official Synopsis: Ashley goes to her new college while getting over the death of her mother. She meets some new people there including Binder ('Shane Dawson') while at a party and she learns about an urban legend of an online killer that has the nickname "Smiley" who can only be seen on the web and he apparently kills people after they type in "I did it for the lulz" three times. Soon after going to the party Ashley and her flatmate Proxy go online to test it out, with horrific results. She becomes paranoid and she starts to think she sees Smiley all over the place and feels that he may be chasing her, but how can that be if he is not real? Have they somehow released him from the internet?
